Don't worry... giving a wierdo carte blanche is not on my agenda. :) I'm
not going to do anything remotely like that.

I should point out, however, that your e-mail address is probably publicly
available from the list server. Try sending a message to


with any subject, and the command

        review classiccmp

at the beginning of the line in the body of the message.

I put in a tab because the stupid software LOOKS INSIDE list traffic for
commands (as some people here already know). They don't do anything except
cause a polite message to land in your mailbox, but it's still annoying.

I think there's an option to only make the subscriber list available to
other subscribers. I'll look into it right now.

Hey, how'd you find out about Mrs. Zzmmm? She was my secret computer
supplier! Now I'll have to find a new one.
